Sugar spun on top of flocking powder nail art
Hey girls! By now, you know about my need for nail experiments. So I was wondering, how would the babies look if a sugar spun mani and a flocking powder mani got together? Here they are! Click to see the rest of the pics, plus a video tutorial!
I started out with Paws By Eddie The NeedWant as my base color and let it dry thoroughly. Now work one nail at a time! Apply a top coat, and while it's wet, dip your nail into the flocking powder. Pat down the flocking powder to make it really stick. Brush off the excess with a dry, firm brush.
Amazing Chic Nails Picadilly Circus, this is a deep black polish with holographic shards and I'd hoped that it would give a nice extra effect. Wait a while to let the polish get really goopy. You need it thick and goopy so you can pull strings from it using your dotting tool (mine is from Christrio Scotland). Do take plenty of time for this, if the polish isn't goopy enough, you won't get nice strings.
Pick up a bit of polish, and when it creates a nice string, drape that over the nail. Repeat until you're satisfied with the result, and clean up around the cuticles. You can top coat, but it will defeat the whole effect!
